Liner Shadow - null
When I saw this color online (Black Ruby) I thought "wow, that is beautiful and unique" I also knew that sometimes computers don't always display the colors correctly, but I thought I would take a chance since it looked so lovely. Well let me tell you it is even more beautiful in person and on your eye! In the pot it looks beautifully pigmented but a little more shimmery than the picture so I was a little worried because I was not looking for shimmer but when you get it on it's not. It's just a gorgeous color that you would be able to wear with so many different eye shadows. Looks great with blue eyes. Love, love, love these liner shadows and wouldn't think of using a different kind of eyeliner. I use them wet and dry. Please don't ever discontinue them, Please!
Love it! And trick to combat mess
This is the perfect liner! It can look very natural if used dry, or if wetted it goes on heavy which is perfect for me! I have the soft black and love it. ((What i did to combat the mess it can make is I used an exact knife to cut out only one hole and left the seal on the other three so I can get a lot with a couple shakes or a little and it works great))
I have officially converted from liner pencils
I always knew you could use eye shadows as an eyeliner...but I didn't realize how much of a difference it would make. I loved the look of liquid liners but could never find one that I could really deal with - either it would smudge, smear, and come off with just a touch of moisture, or it would be so waterproof that it was hard to get off with makeup remover. This is absolutely perfect. It lasts all day, will survive through a few tears if you're careful, and then comes off the same as my mascara when I wash my face at night.
I will agree with another reviewer that this can be messy - I always open the little container over my sink, just in case some powder falls out, because this is a little more intense of a color than normal eyeshadows so I don't want this falling on my carpet, clothes, etc.
Perfect but Messy!
I've been using this eyeshadow/liner for almost 4 years and I love it. All you have to do is add some water, grab an angle brush, and it goes on well and stays on all day. I will be using it forever, the only thing is when you open it, IT GETS EVERYWHERE! I usually have to open it up on top of a paper towel because if I don't, it gets all over my fingers and the table and it doesn't come off except with makeup remover! That is the only thing I don't like about it. If you're thinking about buying it, do it, just have a good makeup remover and a paper towel near you when you open it up.
Create any number of looks with the Liner Shadow!
I have this product in several shades. What I like most about it is its versatility. I can create a soft, natural look or a more bold, sassy look just by the way I apply it (dry or wet). Very easy to layer color if you want a heavier or smokey eye look. The only reason why I did not give it five hearts is because it can be a little messy sometimes.
Black Ruby - my new best friend
I absolutely love Black Ruby. Not only is it a great liner, but I have mixed it with a soft light shadow and used it in my crease for a great smoky eye. I have blue eyes and it just makes them pop! Its got just enough shimmer to glam up your eye. It stays put, what's not to love.
I have these in Black Ruby and Sugar Plum -- both are fantastic for setting off green eyes. I mix it with a dot of shadow liner, tap the brush to make sure there's no loose fallout, and I find it very easy to apply. I use an angled eyeliner brush, and I can do a thin line or thick. I love the colors -- they are really "there" and don't fade. Best of all, it stays put all day. This is better than any pencil I've tried, and better than liquid liner. In the future it would be nice to have in cake formula for travel, but I highly recommend liner shadow as is.
Dragonfly - BEAUTIFUL
I received a sample of the Dragonfly because I wasn't sure if I would like the color or not. It is a BEAUTIFUL color. The color shown on the web site doesn't do it justice. If you have ever seen a real dragonfly in bright sunlight, this is the exact same color. It is a deep sapphire color with tiny sparkles of other colors. I use it wet as a liner and then also brush it on my lashes after using the Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara. Next week when I get to the Boutique that my sister-in-law works at, this is going to be at the top of my list. Thank you Bare Minerals for such a awesome color!
Surprisingly versatile and long lasting
I had been alternating btw a liquid liner (Stila) and a gel liner (Mac) when I bought this. The other two products worked well, but one ran out very quickly (or dried up) and the other was drying up.
The beauty of this little jar of powder is that it won't ever dry out. One of the girls at a boutique showed me a nifty trick: Mix a bit of eye shadow primer with a tiny bit of this liner/shadow powder and the liner will stay on forever.
And I swear: It works as she said.
Using primer to mix the product, the liner cannot be easily rubbed off or washed off (it really stays on). One has to use an eye makeup remover. And one must wash the brush immediately (and maybe with special cleanser).
Alternatively one can also just use a drop of water (as suggested) to mix with the powder--it applies just as smoothly and stays on quiet long as well. The brush washes clean just as easily.
I can't imagine my life without this product.
I decided to purchase this on a whim and I am SO GLAD I did. This little jar has lasted me forever (over a year) even with daily use. I use coffee bean and it is the perfect shade. I use it as a brow liner as well as an eyeliner and it gives me the most amazing smokey look. I find it much easier to apply and way more forgiving than liquid or pencil liners. This product is a MUST HAVE. I want everyone to experience the absolute perfection that is this product. I mean really guys, over a year's worth of eyeliner and brow liner for $14?
I am in search of a replacement but unfortunately it looks like I can only get it online now. Ulta has stopped selling it and the boutiques I have visited do not carry it. PLEASE DO NOT GET RID OF THIS PRODUCT!!
